to investigate. hillary clinton says she plans to cooperate with the probe. the pennsylvania judge has struck down the state's election law requiring voters to show photo id. pennsylvania's law allowed voting only to those who could produce a state driver's license, government employee id, or a state non-driver id card. but on tuesday, a commonwealth court judge ruled the state does not have enough time to adequately provide id to all those that need it in time for the november 6 election. the law was among the strictest to pass as a nationwide effort critics say is aimed at disenfranchising lower-income residents and people of color who tend to vote democratic. after its passage earlier this year, pennsylvania's republican house majority leader, mark -- mike turzai, predicted it would help romney win the state. tuesday's ruling does help pave the way for its use in future elections. mississippi also announced it will not enforce its law requiring photo ids at the polls. palau was put on hold after the justice department demanded proof that the measure would not violate the voting rights act.
think if president obama had inherited bill clinton's economy, a surplus. that wasn't the case. so i think the president needs to remind america where we were and where we have been and the accomplishments that we've made. as far as mitt romney is concerned, romney can go after president obama all he wants tonight. he's got some serious repair work to do after the 47% comment, because that was a real snapshot as to who he is. plus, his private sector experience has got a checkered past. he's an outsource iceoutsourcer. he's a guy who's gone to the bottom line who hasn't been good to middle class families. he can't put a number on how many jobs he's actually created. but we hear these testimonials more and more all the time because of the hardship the middle class has gone through because of the economic model he presented in the private sector. that is a huge target for the president tonight, and i think he'll exploit it. >> steve schmidt, from a republican perspective, looking at that plus 19 number that president obama has got on handling issue of the middle class, how does mitt ro
clinton was running for reelection, at this point in the campaign he was not at 44%. he was at 504%. that is that 10 percent difference president obama has so destroyed the confidence of his own party in an independence that he is lagging ten points behind where bill clinton was. he is in terrible political say and for reasons i will review here shortly he is going to get worse before it gets better. i personally believe that 44 percent is a ceiling, not a floor. that is, inflated. my friend, great assistant to richard nixon, ronald reagan speech writer and adviser has long argued that there is no such thing as a bradley effect. the bradley effect is named for mayor tom bradley of los angeles when he ran against george deukmejian did not do as well in the final balloting is he had been doing in the polling. for years pundits have ascribe that to the brad the affected people are free to say they're not going to vote for african-american because they don't want to be up to the prejudice he they're talking anonymously to pollsters. and he has all the data, and i believe him, but i bel
on that stage and cannot wait to be there and are eager to make their case. bill clinton was like that. ronald reagan was like that. these two are not like that. for them, this is more, please do not let me do anything wrong, than, what can i do right? as was discussed earlier, he needs a dramatic moment to shift the momentum. if he is intimidated by the experience or feeling boxed in, he is less likely to do that. for obama, it is more a question for maintaining his lead. he does not want to do anything right now that reverses the trajectory he is on. i would expect he is a little timid as well. >> if you look at past debates, one dealing with policy, the moment with gerald ford, the other is more style, where obama made a joke about his age. how much is policy and how much a style in these debates? >> i think probably my judgment would be a lot of it is stylistic. it is the way they come across to the voters. it is not necessarily as much what they are saying as how they are saying it. every once in awhile, it is really more of a case of glitch avoidance. that has a lot to do with their hand
-september, tied with bill clinton by the end of october, though clinton eventually won. a former clinton pollster is questioning the assumptions being made in today's polls. >> these polls are assuming that you have the same high level of african american, latino, and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. >> obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod told fox, "public polls are widely variant in their sampling and methodology so it's hard to case when they all point in one direction they're all wrong, but we are planning for a close race as we always have." another democratic strategist offered this assessment -- >> the race isn't over. look, this thing can move back and forth three or four times between now and november 6th. if i'm romney, you try to create that momentum. he saw a sign to do it. >> of the eight presidential races in the past 10 where the leads were cut or flipped by the opponent, the average of the comebacks was roughly 5%. in some cases it was a debate that moved the needle. harris? >> mike, thank you of the let's go to syria where the u.n. is estimating more than 20
recall a heated exchange between hillary clinton and president obama back in 2008's debate in south carolina. >> while i was working on those streets watching those folks see their jobs shipped overseas you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of walmart. i was fighting these fights. i was fighting these fights. knives fighting against those ideas when you were practicing law and representing your contributor in his slum landlord business, in inner city chicago. >> so, wolf blitzer, joe johns myself had an opportunity to ask questions of the candidate in myrtle beach. do you remember the energy in that room. i mean you knew when they went after each other the battle was on. it was game on time. you had cheers. you had jeers. all that. and people remember those moments. what do you think -- what do you think the president -- what do you think he learned out of that experience? >> you know, i thought about that for a while today, suzanne. i think the president clearly perfected his style. it was pretty clear to me that he started seeing even then that any flashes of anger on h
, we saw front runners annointed by the media and campaign bosses, senator clinton and governor romney was presumed to be the nominee back then. in both parties we saw the voters take the whole process back from the bosses and the media. >> that's true. >> no one thought barack obama and john mccain would be the nominees in 2008. >> that's true. i don't know necessarily about barack obama i thought john mccain would be. >> the new hampshire primary was a big upset. >> if you look at 2000 and don't realize that he won 49% against george bush. if you look at the early stages of the primary hiring staff, mccain had all the top notch people in his team. he fired a lot because he ran out of money but he had most of the good people that you would want on your team on his team. romney the same way this time around. republicans have a habit of picking people who have run and lost before. there has only been george w. bush since 1976 has been nominated in the republican party without having previously run for and lost the nomination. >> very good point. >> we've only had one ticket, excluding t
. that happened in one or two of the clinton debates and it could puncture that aura that obama has. one thing will help romney . being on the tage. just being on the same stage as the presidentinantly raises your stat u. what will the questions about tomorrow night. will it be fair or balanced in it will be domestic policy . we are entered in knowing what your question should be. what do you want to know. e-mail and twitter us was we'll read them later on. >> brian: in the mean time there is a request for military rotes and the ending of one war and the ongoing war on terror and ending of another war . you would think that the military is anxious to weigh in. that is not the case in terms of demand. >> steve: we talked about this yesterday. if you look at the number of the military requesting absentee ballots. it is down. 70 or 80 or 90 percent lower numbers than we had back in 2008. these are the request are down by 50 percent. and republican senator from texas said this is another example of how the u.s. department of defense under president obama has failed our military. and in fact, he an
's headed. >> the bill clinton speech. >> i think, yeah, because certainly the metrics haven't changed much. things haven't gotten a great deal better. but i think bill clinton was able to set a predicate and able to say things that barack obama couldn't say. he inherited a mess and he's making it better. he could say i inherited a mess, he couldn't say i'm headaching it b making it better. >> we're saying how mitt romney could win the election if he does well in the debates and turns things around. but the right track/wrong track numbers, i think you would agree with me, the fact that americans, 57% of americans think the economy is getting better, the right track/wrong track is tightening up. it was in the low 30s, now it's at 40%. you look at states like ohio where right track/wrong track is even more positive than that, that does help the president a great deal. >> it does, and that is a pretty remarkable shift in the numbers, as sam just pointed out. and the key is not how people think the economy is today but where they think it's going. and at 57% think it's headed in the right direc
in the middle of an election campaign. bill clinton was comparing beijing to baghdad. this was at the time when china was moving from baghdad to paris. [laughter] maybe i am overstating the case, but that is what is happening. this was a dramatic shift in china and the u.s. government paid absolutely no attention to it. it had no impact on the policies of the clinton the administration when it took office. since i was the american ambassador, this confronted me with a problem of american government and had one view of china but china was already moving in a different direction and that created some contradictions in trying to carry out my instructions. this time, you have some echoes of that. clearly the bo xilai affair has shown that the political system is not that different for others. leaders have their own ambitions. some succeed and some come crashing down, as in the case of bo xilai. so we should not assume political jockeying is not taking place and this could explain why the announcement of the party congress was delayed. no longer do you have an all- powerful leader who can resolve di
follow up on secretary clinton's meeting with him. he has denied that they had a phone conversation and instead said he also spoke with governor romney. >> well, i don't think that benjamin netanyahu is tampering with the american election. he has a timeline that he has to deal with. an existential threat coming from iran. working on nuclear arsenal with leaders that deny the holocaust and promised a new one and have vowed to wipe the state of israel off the map. not everything is actually about barack obama and the election prospects. these guys have serious issues to deal with. the president of the united states is quite literally phoning it in and benjamin netanyahu is laying out a real scenario. this is something that the world ought to be dealing with, that leader of the free world, the united states would've been much more engaged than there would've been international coalition to deal with this looming threats. mitt romney may very well have to deal with what barack obama leads in his wake, and there will be a great deal left in his wake. megyn: the readout of the call doesn
a debate with then-candidate bill clinton. the gesture gave voters the impression that he was impatient and uninterested. during the 2000 presidential debates, al gore got up in governor george w. bush's grill. look. [laughter] just a classic moment where he was invading his personal space a little, and, boy, did he take some flak. mr. bush gave him a nod and kept talking. in one of the more unusual moments during the vice presidential debates in '92 between republican dan quayle, democrat al gore and the third party running mate of ross perot who was admiral james stockdale, there was this moment. >> admiral stockdale, your opening statement, please, sir. >> who am i? [laughter] why am i here? [laughter] [applause] megyn: he was totally charming and likable but also got a lot of criticism for his performance in that debate, and, you know, his family later came out and said they thought it was unfortunate because they thought it changed his legacy, and he was a very honorable man. in any event, we are all watching wednesday night. they say this is going to be the most important debate b

to the secretary of state, hillary clinton, the house oversight committee alleges 12 incidents that show the deteriorating security situation on the ground in libya. the reported incidents include a libyan security force so afraid for its own safety that family members urged the guards to quit in the weeks leading up to the murders. also threats specifically targeting ambassador stevens. the letter reads in part, quote. >> reporter: fox news first reported friday that the physical security was so substandard at the benghazi consulate that it required a waiver signed off in washington by the secretary of state or the head of foreign building operations. a state department spokeswoman said there would be no comment on that wafer until their internal investigation was complete. jenna: the drip, drip, drip of information continues now weeks later after this event. any response on capitol hill now to the administration's latest claims about what's going on and the attack as it stands? >> reporter: well, in an interview with fox news, the head of the house intelligence committee, republican co

, bill clinton. it only took bush and dick cheney one-term to bring about the recession. now we have another democrat to the rescue. why do we keep having these right-wing people in places of power when all we have our own financial disaster after another? host: by the way, mitt romney writes in the wall street journal and opinion. two candidates are preparing for the debate on wednesday in denver. at the same time we are asking about the vp candidates and whether they will impact your votes. vermont on the line, independence, mary. will the candidates impact your vote? caller: absolutely. primarily, we need someone who is ready to go if something should happen to the president. by far, biden exceeds paul ryan in those qualifications. he has done a wonderful job as vice president. truly exceptional in comparison to others. you don't hear about it much, but if you go to alternate media you get a very good idea of how hard this man works and how capable he is. the definitely would be my choice. the other thing i would like to comment on. i am a retired teacher. americans really need to
when he was trying to get to the left of hillary clinton saying he opposed nafta. he ran on that in ohio. then as soon as the ohio primary was done, he never talked again about renegotiating nafta. we found out later he sent a top aide to canada to say ignore -- >> we got to go. one at a time. one at a time. let ari finish, please. >> both candidates have engaged in tactical maneuvering. this is nothing new. >> i guess i'm not saying it's anything new and i'm not saying both candidates don't shift and move to the center after primaries and stuff. the point is, it seems like he is doing that right now. we got to leave it there, ari, appreciate it. roland martin, thank you. >>> up next, breaking news. new information about a border patrol officer who was shot and killed in the line of duty. we talked about him last night. question tonight, was it friendly fire? what the fbi is saying tonight, next on "360." ♪ ♪ [ man ] excuse me miss.

clinton. doug, the numbers you saw on the screen, since the conventions, the president has gained four and romney has lost two, a swing of six points. >> that is where the race is. there are some polls in the swing states showing outsize leaps for obama the ink they are over sampling democrats and the mainstream media is away from what the race is. that is, a close contest. the president is about 48 or 49 percent approval and vote share. the governor's campaign has lost support. he is down around 43 percent. the 47 percent combined with the drift in the campaign has reduced his vote share, but it is still a a race, and the debate will be critical. >>gregg: this poll shows president obama at 49 and 44 and that can chain instantly. some of the media have written governor romney's obituary, this is premature. >> the media polls, the mainstream media uses the state polls like the new form of negative advertising. other negative campaigning against romney. the news organizations that are broke are spending thousands and thousands on the state polls each week to show, to push obama. look, th
, as in that you're likable enough comment with hillary clinton. disciplined in saying here is what i want to do, here is why you're wrong and here is why i'll do a better job. where he gets into trouble is when something comes out of left field that he hasn't been scripted for and then the $10,000 bet instinct often serves him wrong. >> this is the moment that the challenger has some advantage because it's the first time you've seen him on the stage with the president. >> historically, that's been the case. a president never stands as an equal with another american citizen except during these debates and for all that we read and psych out the race say it may be opening up now there's still this undeniable drama seeing these people in the same room, face to face. the challenger often gets a boost just by being there with the incumbent. >> great piece in "the atlantic." you went back and looked at some 30 hours of the debates and one of the most interesting points you made is that you can actually learn a lot about who won the debate by turning off the sound. what do you mean? >> it's truchlt it'
that comment over and over again. >> the comparison with president clinton. >> so both those campaigns are going in with prescripted lines having watched what the other candidates are saying. >> it's worth noting that mitt romney has been debating over the past two years with his opponents. president obama has been practicing, no doubt, but it's harder for a president to do because he's busier and doesn't like being addressed in a challenging way. >> but as michael lewis pointed out, this president likes to practice in a stealth way. >> yes, it's true. i'm sure he's going to be prepared. >> james fallows, thank you so much. >> my pleasure. >>> american airlines is facing new trouble. the faa is investigating two incidents where a row of passenger seats came loose inned my flight. mark strassman is here with the story. good morning. >> reporter: american airlines has grounded eight of its jets as a precaution while they're inspected for a sign of more problems. for now, there's nothing that apparently suggests this problem was caused intentionally during a divisive labor dispute. it's o
